I'm so sorry to hear you're missing the picture.
My advice to you is to locate the drive /dev/null, remove it from the computer and send it off to a professional data recovery company. I'm sure they will be most helpful.
Do remember to replace the drive once removed, (you will need to format it:
sudo dd if=/dev/random of=/dev/null
-- this may take some time) as otherwise you will not have any backup space to use.
Most backups are WOM, anyway. People don't check 'em until it's too late.

I lived in the Netherlands for ten years until quite recently. The Dutch have been metric nearly forever. There, apart from the standard metric measurements, there are duimen (thumbs or inches) and voeten (feet). You can buy cheese and so forth by the ons (ounce) and the pond (I don't have to translate that one, do I?), and beer by the pint. Yup, the pint (pronounced with a short i as in pin). I won't even mention the dozijn.
France also has la livre (pound--feminine, as opposed to the masculine, which means book).
Left Hand, pay Right Hand
This is a pointless exercise.

This might be the case in the US. However, breach of copyright in the EU is a criminal offence. Just tip off plod and they do the rest.
Isn't that nice?
The look of the logo for starters ;)
Paris, because she'd agree...
Use false addresses?
Presumably there's a sort of sanity check to ensure that the address entered is correct.
IANAL, but they should be living somewhere immodest by now :)
So which was the good company?
Although I can understand this thing occurs, I should take a very dim view if any of my engineers attempted that sort of thing.
Threadneedle Street to be renamed?
... and they DID do away with Gropecunte Lane.
Google the Lord!
Well, other religions have propounded "do nothing evil" in their time, too.
I note that Tesco’s aren’t using perfect grammar themselves.
Note the "will" instead of "shall".
